[Let’s Talk] What are you playing? – July 2017
Posted on July 8, 2017 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk
A new month is here! We just entered July last week, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.
Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Have you given Ever Oasis a shot? Or maybe you’re trying something on Switch like ARMS or the new Zelda DLC. Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!
Highlights from last week’s topic: Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials impressions
Started a new file on Master Mode thinking I could handle the enemies. Kept getting killed by Bokoblins.
Got a little farther, and suddenly there are Guardians EVERYWHERE. Like, a cluster of 3 of them right before Kakariko. I killed one by deflecting the blasts back with my shield. No big deal.
But the Guardians are trickier in Master Mode apparently. They have different firing patterns that stop you from easily deflecting their blasts. Some blasts are delayed, and sometimes they fire twice in a row. I gave up on fighting them for now.
It’s excellent. Really impressed with the Trials and some of the floor designs. It’s so much more in depth than a simple horde mode. I haven’t played in a while so I’m still shaking the rust off but, even in early floors, there is a challenge to be had.
As for the Master Challenge, I got spotted by a lookout on the Great Plateau and suddenly had floating platforms spring up around me, all manned by blue Bokoblins with bomb arrows and all I could think was f**k yes.
Also there was a white Lynel on the Great Plateau. It was great.
The DLC came out when I just finished the four divine beasts and got Master sword. So it’s a time to make a choice. Staying in normal difficulty level and collecting all the collectables or beating Ganon and leave for the Master mode. To be honest, I was hesitating heavily. Even for Zelda games, it is still annoying to start over one video game. But today morning I made the decision. I beated Ganon quickly and started a new save with Master mode. It was surprising that I didn’t feel much tedious when played the prologue part as second time. The new difficulty is fresh. I like it and I even look forward to harder in the left part. Hope this time I can finish all the collectables.
